Personal profile

Research interests


I am a PhD Student in medical anthropology, where I investigate the symbolic and material practices around antibiotic use in the broader socio-historical context of rural Nakhon Pathom, Thailand. Before starting my PhD, I managed international survey projects, conducted qualitative research across Southeast Asia, and implemented participatory and arts-based research whose results formed the content of international photo exhibitions.
